Looks like some JRPG is in the pipeline, what would it be? :)

op Xbox boss Phil Spencer has another message for people who want to see Japanese role-playing games on Xbox One: "Keep asking."

That's what he said to a fan recently on Twitter, who asked if there was anything on the JRPG horizon for Xbox One.

"It's a good and fair question. Keep asking until we show you something you like," Spencer replied. "I can't share specific plans now, sorry."

This isn't the first time Spencer has spoken out about the potential for JRPGs on Xbox One.

Back in November 2014, the Xbox executive, in response to fans calling for more games along the lines of Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey, said: "You will see JRPGs on Xbox One."

Bringing more JRPGs to Xbox One is a popular topic on the Xbox Feedback site, attracting more than 3,500 votes. For his part, Spencer said in previous interviews that Japan is a "soulful" place for games, and one that is "critical" for Microsoft to support.

The Xbox One launched in Japan in September, though system sales aren't very strong there.

I dont see that ending well. The audience for JRPG's is not tipically on Xbox.

With that said, it may make some of them come to live, wich is always good. Perhaps a Lost odyssey 2.

Unfortunaly the developer of Lost Odyssey (Feelplus) no longer exist. I'll take anymore JRPGs I can. If MS's money means I get an extra decent JRPG to play then all the better.
